CDT - Combined Decongestive Therapy MLD - Manual Lymph Drainage

Chronic Sinusitis / Rhinitis

Inflammation of the nasal & sinus passages causing discomfort and headaches is generally a lymphatic system problem which can often be helped with just a few manual lymph drainage sessions. Self-MLD can then keep it at bay.

Chronic Acne

Severe acne can have a number of causes but its becoming recognised that the lymphatic system may be compromised and while medications & skin management can assist the symptoms, MLD may work on the cause.

Bronchitis / Fluid on the Lungs

Fluid on the lungs is a debilitating condition resulting in breathing difficulties and poor oxygenation of the blood. While these conditions are at present incurable, CDT can have a very positive effect on both management and the body’s ability to cope.

Digestive Issues

Conditions such as colitis, diverticulitis, IBS, constipation and Crohn’s disease are all inflammatory diseases of the gut which can be calmed and assisted with CDT including diet and MLD.

Arm Oedema

Lymphoedema of the arm is most commonly caused by lymph node removal as a result of cancer surgery. Experts estimate that from 5%-40% of sufferers will experience some level of lymphoedema after surgery. Its most important to tackle this condition early as it can significantly reduce the risk of chronic oedema occurring.

Post Operative Oedema Knee and Hip

All traumas to the body are likely to affect the lymphatic system. Taping and MLD can significantly speed up the healing process of acute oedema, provide scar tissue management and lymph drainage redirection where lymph vessels are severed.

Lipedema

Lipedema is a hereditary disorder of fatty tissue distribution over the thighs and legs. It will always affect both limbs which will continue to grow without treatment. Note that dieting is not a solution for this condition which needs diagnosis and CDT treatment as early as possible.

Primary Lympoedema (Inherited)

Inherited oedema diseases currently have no cures so particular attention must to be given to children of oedema parents. Catching the condition as early as possible ensures the best chances of life management through CDT.

Pregnancy Oedema

Pregnancy oedema is most likely to occur in the feet and legs due to the changes in body chemistry and is normal as the weight of the uterus can block veins and groin lymph nodes. Gentle massage and MLD can help both relax mums to be and relieve oedema ensuring that it is kept in check.

Post Flight Swelling

Post flight swelling is a common occurrence and is caused by the difference in air pressure. Note that flight oedema will usually affect both feet and legs where as DVTs are likely to cause a painful swelling in one leg only. If you’re susceptible to flight oedema its important to obtain the correct sized compression socks for travelling and to attend MLD sessions on your return.
